Peirene Now! No. 3

Stories from Shatila

We are currently planning Peirene Now! No. 3. Our publisher Meike and Syrian editor Suhir Helal will travel to Shatila refugee camp in Lebanon this summer, and, in Arabic, run creative writing classes with people living there. The stories that come out of these classes, written by the locals, will be translated into English and will make up Peirene Now! No. 3, to be published in 2018. For this project we are collaborating with the Beirut based NGO, Basmeh and Zeitooneh.


April 2017: Meike & Suhir introduce the project in Arabic.
